Ice and Lemonade


______Some of you have already noticed that I've designed a new blog layout.  It's so different from what it was before, but I'm quite pleased with the how it turned out!  Even though I'm awful at coping with change, making a new blog layout wasn't all too difficult for me to accept mentally.  I mean, making it was difficult in the sense that I had to make it with only Word 2010 and Microsoft Paint at my disposal (the process was comparable to giving a dog a haircut using a lemon wedge), but you know what? After finally completing it, I feel like quite the unstoppable force.

______Why, I could probably conquer a formidably-sized ant colony right now. Or climb a pile of rocks on a construction site. Or teach a betta fish alegebra. Or jump from a four foot tall fence and survive.

______What I'm getting at is that I think I'm getting a little bit better at this so-called concept of "change." I've learned that in some instances, in order to get yourself used to something, you've just gotta throw yourself into it, even if the water's cold.
